Keys to Buying Your Home "Right" @ U of U Sandy | Sandy | Utah | United States

Class also meets on Saturday, 03/07/15, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm.

A home is the biggest purchase most of us will ever make, and in real estate, you make money when you buy — not when you sell. Loving the house is not enough. How do you keep yourself from making a colossal mistake? Let’s start by talking about what to look for in a home, how to evaluate its “Quality of Life” and its investment value. We’ll discuss pitfalls and how to avoid them; finance options which best meet your needs; the hidden costs of buying; and “secret” ways to pay legitimate closing costs. We’ll take you step-by-step through the buying process from preparation to closing, including how to package, present and negotiate your offer. A Saturday field trip to see houses provides real-world examples of our discussions.
